A child serial killer is on the loose in Detroit. Police found the dead bodies off 11 infants hidden inside the roof of a local Detroit funeral home. Police believe that there may be a serial killer on the loose in Detroit.
It's still early, but the bodies of the 11 infants appear to be "relatively fresh", according to social media reports.
"They're very small remains, OK," Detroit police Lt. Brian Bowser said at a Friday night news conference.
He said police were working with the medical examiner's office to identify the bodies and notify family members.
The funeral home has been closed for about six months because of alleged workplace violations and an ongoing state investigation.
Jason Moon, the Communications Director with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) released the following statement: "We will use the evidence gathered today to add to our open investigation and will continue to work with local law enforcement as this case proceeds," Moon said.
“Based on a new complaint, LARA investigators today searched Cantrell Funeral Home and found the decomposing bodies of 11 infants. We then immediately contacted local authorities.
In April, LARA suspended the mortuary licenses of both the home and its manager Jameca LaJoyce Boone for many violations including the improper storage of decomposing bodies of adult and infants. That suspension order remains in effect as does our investigation. We will use the evidence gathered today to add to our open investigation and will continue to work with local law enforcement as this case proceeds.”
